Toronto-based singer-songwriter Hunnah has announced that her debut – an EP called Show You – is slated for release on November 14.
In celebration, the newcomer shares the dreamy video for her single “Think About It” that’s directed by Stephanie Osuna-Hernandez. The independent release is a project of complete love for Hunnah who dedicates it to her mother who recently passed away from cancer.
It’s lined with the soothing R&B sounds that she grew up on and features her upcoming song “Crush” produced by Chicano artist Cuco. Equal parts thrilling and harrowing, the project served as a therapeutic vehicle for her to come to terms with her heavy relationship with mother, but also to solidify herself as one of tomorrow’s most promising voices in music.
Hunnah was born to two Ethiopian refugee parents who immigrated to Canada and urged her into a life of academics like many immigrants families often do. She began making YouTube covers and gained a loyal following there, and ultimately turned away from academia and trust herself into music against the wishes of her parents.
She made this project while she cared for her mother as she fought her illness and simultaneously found her own identity and voice through her music.
“Think About It” is available now for streaming on Spotify.
